This Is The End

No found footage, no gratuitous amounts of gore or blood, just good old fashion suspense and scares in James Wan’s The Conjuring. Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga, Lily Taylor, and Ron Livingston star. WB will release The Conjuring on July 19th.
Only God Forgives
There is a surprisingly lack of blood smearing in the first trailer for Nicholas Winding Refn’s Only God Forgives. The filmmaker reteams with his Drive star Ryan Gosling for this revenge drama about a drug runner who fronts as a Thai Boxing Blub owner who seeks vengeance on those who killed his brother. No release date has been set.
